“The Cherokee Art Market is one of the premier American Indian art shows in the United States,” Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker said in a media release.

“Our annual market continues to grow year after year, and that is a direct testament to the Cherokee Nation’s ability to showcase these celebrated artistic talents in a world-class event.”
